Citing antisemitism, Women’s March New Orleans scrapped

(JNS) The New Orleans Women’s March has been canceled with its chapter citing “several issues,” one being antisemitism within the national movement.

Marches are scheduled nationwide for Jan. 19. “Many of the sister marches have asked the leaders of Women’s March, Inc. to resign but as of today, they have yet to do so,” the New Orleans chapter said in its announcement on Saturday, Dec. 29. Additionally, “the controversy is dampening efforts of sister marches to fundraise, enlist involvement and find sponsors, and attendee numbers have drastically declined this year. New Orleans is no exception.”

Other local marches that have been canceled include those in Chicago and  Eureka, Calif.
